Biggest Dortmund win: Dortmund 4-1 Real Madrid (25 April 2013)

Dortmund played one of their memorable games in the Champions League in the 2012/13 season semi final first leg. Then in Black and Yellow, Robert Lewandowski became the first player to score four goals in the competition. The Polish striker completed his hattrick with the fourth goal in the second half after his opener was canceled out by Cristiano Ronaldo's 50th  Champions League strike. Although Real Madrid won 2-0 in the reverse fixture, Dortmund managed to get into the final which was hosted in Wembley back then as well.

At home, Los Blancos thrashed Schwarzgelben 3-0 with Gareth Bale, Isco and Ronaldo getting on the scoresheet for their biggest win in this fixture.
